I just got a call from the car repair dude who works on my car, and he told me a list of things my car “needs” with a very disconcerting price tag. This conversation reminds me that “needs” can be very disturbing, and they often force us to figure out ways to resolve these needs. In contrast, needs don’t seem to be disconcerting for Jesus. For example, when I look at the conversation between Jesus and His mom, in John 2, at the wedding feast in Cana, Jesus seems to be pretty relaxed about the “need” for more wine. In contrast, Jesus’ mom seems to be more uptight about this need than Him.
